Harrison Ford in Regarding Henry Teaches Successful Lawyers About The Value Of Supportive Relationships

Regardinghenry Lawyers on the fast track to fame and fortune should set aside time to watch Regarding Henry starring Harrison Ford and Annette Bening. Ford plays the role of hotshot litigator Henry Turner whose exclusive focus in life is achieving success in the courtroom, which comes at the expense of his relationship with his wife, Sarah, and 12-year old daughter, Rachel. Fate intervenes when Henry is shot by a convenience store robber and loses his speech, mobility and memory. The tragedy, however, teaches Henry the meaning of love and devotion as his wife and daughter nurse him back to health. Slowly regaining his faculties, Henry realizes that, despite the trappings of wealth and success, his former life lacked meaningful relationships.

Those who watch Regarding Henry will also want to read a recent article by psychologist Ellen Ostrow that recounts the story of "Angie," a successful, 35-year old partner at a West Coast firm with over 600 attorneys whose bout with cancer taught her the value of supportive relationships and spending time with people she loves. See Dr. Ostrow's article here - a true instance of life imitating art.
